Assistant Professor Michelle Marcus named to 2021-22 cohort of Junior Faculty Teaching Fellows
Assistant Professor Michelle Marcus is one of only 18 Vanderbilt faculty named to the 2021-22 cohort of Junior Faculty Teaching Fellows. The participants are selected based on identification of clear and achievable goals for program participation and for use of research funds, their potential impact at Vanderbilt, support from their chair, and readiness to learn. Fellows engage in a structured set of professional development activities—including a seminar on teaching and learning, individual consultations, teaching visits and dinner discussions—designed to help them refine their teaching skills and learn to teach more efficiently. Fellows participate in these activities with past Junior Faculty Teaching Fellows, senior faculty mentors, and CFT senior staff. In addition, fellows receive $2,000 each in research funds to be used to enhance their teaching.
